Register to the Regional Forum on: “Strengthening the resilience and increasing the climate ambition of Local Governments in Africa”

United Cities and Local Government of Africa (UCLG Africa), Covenant of Mayors in Sub-Saharan Africa (CoM SSA) and their Partners, are pleased to invite you to take part in the UEMOA Regional Forum on: “Strengthening the resilience and increasing the climate ambition of Local Governments in Africa”, that will be organised on June 10-11, 2021 in Lomé, Togo.

The conference will be held Under the High Patronage of His Excellency Mr. Faure Gnassingbé, President of the Republic of Togo.

Organized in a hybrid format (face-to-face and online), this meeting aims to examine the conditions to be fulfilled to increase climate investment within the local authorities of the WAEMU space.  It will specifically address the common problems faced by authorities in charge of managing local and regional governments in the field of Climate Action. It will explore concrete mechanisms to facilitate the access of these authorities to climate finance, in particular to the Green Climate Fund, within the framework of the Territorialisation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in Africa.

The forum will also serve as a framework for the workshop to launch the national support process for the signatory cities of the CoM SSA in Togo.

It will be attended by WAEMU, WADB, EBID, UNDP, the European Union and National Associations of Local Authorities in West Africa.

Join us by registering here.

Translation will be available for all sessions in English and French, and the proceedings will be available online on our Facebook and YouTube pages.
